However, we can offer flexible stays with varying minimum night requirements and non-Saturday check-ins/check-outs during most of the year with exception to holidays and peak weeks unless city ordinances prohibit it. Always feel free to ask prior to booking to see if this is a possibility as we may not be able to accommodate changes after booking.

Daily housekeeping or linen services are not included in your stay. 

Additional cleaning and laundry services are available by request mid-stay at additional charge. For stays of 28-days or more, a mid-stay clean will be required to be scheduled and paid by guest at additional cost.

POOL & SPA (if any):
The pool is heated year-round at no additional cost for the convenience and comfort of our guests. Pool temperatures are set between 82-85 degrees and will not be set higher due to keeping proper chemical balance, clarity, and cleanliness of the pools. Due to strict city noise ordinances pool heaters and filters do not run during the hours of 10p-8a. Please note that cooler ambient temperatures (20-degree difference between water and air temperature) may result in pool heater unable to compensate the difference. We are not responsible for cold spells causing cooler pool temperatures or unexpected failure of equipment. Please note that a residential spa is a section of pool that once turned on provides relaxation, misting bubbles and warmer temperatures in the high 90s - low 100s but are not permitted to remain on 24/7 or will not reach temperatures like that of a commercial hot tub. Spas may not be operational during the months of June - September to avoid high temperatures of pool water which is detrimental to keeping proper pool chemical balances. Guests are required to read and abide by all posted rules, safety and operating information. Under no circumstance is any guest allowed to adjust pool equipment. Failure to abide may result in guests being fined or liable for any damages to equipment.

Please note this home may be equipped with Ring, Nest or other exterior cameras viewing front door, driveways, pool equipment, and entry/exits of backyard areas only. Cameras are only intended to keep property safe and secure, monitor deliveries, assure occupancy, and are not angled into any areas where guests would assume or expect privacy.

This is hands down the best home for staying in Anna Maria. The home is a perfect layout, all of your amenities, pool, spa, and best of all privacy!! Each room has its own private bathroom and provides adequate space. Only steps away from the beach. Everything was clean, well put together, and an overall extremely comfortable stay. The plants provide an extremely relaxing scenery that you will not find at any other home. If you are looking to stay in Anna Maria, I would strongly suggest staying at this property! 11/10 recommended.

Casa Mariposa
This is one of the nicest homes we have stayed in. The home is well maintained and very clean. It is only a few steps away from whitest, softest sand on the Gulf Coast. The 3 bathrooms on the ground floor have their own private bathrooms (which are nice walk in showers) and the upstairs bedroom has access to a bathroom that is shared by the kitchen/great room. The house seems even larger due to the amount of outside space on porches, sitting areas and the pool area. The lot is a double lot which adds to the space and privacy. Several porches are screened in. Mike and Nikki were a pleasure to work with. We had an issue with the pool in that it wasn't as warm as we desired. I recognize this is personal preference and a challenge as the nights get cooler, nevertheless, they responded positively to our request. Mike personally came on site and brought the pool guy to get it checked. Ended up being a setting that they adjusted and the pool guy performed routine maintenance and presto we had a warm pool and spa!

Casa Mariposa
I booked this home last year after previewing it at the end of our 2019 trip. It's a big home but I booked it with it in mind that our three grown sons would join us. Life Happens. None of the boys could come during out week so it was just my husband and I. Four bedrooms and four bathrooms! As it turned out, the kitchen is a cook's kitchen and we had friends over twice and had a great time cooking. That kitchen has absolutely everything you would need to prepare for a large group. We also enjoyed having six friends over for games around the wonderful gathering table in the living area. The week we were there was pretty cold. We never even went to the beach. But we had a wonderful home so snuggle on the comfortable couch, take much needed naps and drink endless cups of coffee in the mornings on the screened in porches. I would stay here again with two more couples or friends. Management was excellent to work with!

Our family had an amazing time in this beautiful home! The owners have thought of absolutely everything to make your stay comfortable and fun. From the fully stocked pool house to the beautiful furnishings. The butterfly garden and lush landscape really is a hidden paradise. We can’t wait to return! It will exceed your expectations!

Casa Mariposa
Casa Mariposa is just as beautiful in person as all the pictures! Everything was super clean, the beds were very comfortable, and all the TV’s had Netflix, Disney Plus and Amazon Prime. There were plenty of beach towels, beach supplies, and the kitchen had everything we needed. The best part is that this beautiful home was only a short walk to the beach!!! I was worried about the stairs because if our twin toddlers, but they provided us with a gate for the top and that worked out great. Nikki always replied quickly to my emails and was a pleasure to work with! The only thing I would recommend is to make sure you bring mosquito repellent. There are lots of them since it’s a butterfly sanctuary. Don’t leave the doors open too long and wear repellent and you’ll be ok. Beautiful home! Can’t wait to come back!

This home was in amazing shape and had the perfect amenities. Everything you could need indoors and out. We walked to get food every day and just steps from the beach. We would definitely come back to this spot!

We loved Casa Mariposa so much. The only thing missing in the pictures is the amazing smell of the flowers. The location was perfect. Easy walk to the beach, shops and restaurants. Great lay out of the house made it easy for everyone to have their own space if needed :) Also loved being at the pool surrounded by all the palm trees. Loved are 1st trip to Anna Maria Island!
